Justice: First Nations People

Faith leads to action

There are few issues as important for Australia today as how we recognise and respect the first Australians and promote their well-being. How do we as Christians seek to live as people of reconciliation? How can we as Australians walk and live together as people of compassion, justice, peace and hope?

As our congregation develops our Walking Together plan and explores where we have come from as a nation and as a church, we commit to learning from the First Peoples of this land now called Australia. You can read some of our stories below.
